Example Course Plan
History Course Plan (first 3 semesters)
This is an example course plan based on the 2020–2021 University Catalog; your actual
schedule may deviate from this example. Your faculty advisor will work with you to
select appropriate courses.
As an IWU student, it is your responsibility to track your progress each semester
towards completing graduation requirements using the MyIWU degree evaluation tool.
* HIST 290 should be completed by the end of the second year, and is offered either
in the fall or spring semester.
History majors are strongly encouraged to study abroad. For students interested in
studying abroad, the recommended semester(s) is: any semester, or entire junior year.
- IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THOSE WHO THINK THEY MIGHT WANT TO PURSUE HISTORY SECONDARY EDUCATION:
Consider taking the following courses: PSCI 101 (CSI, U); ECON 100 (CSI); and PSYC
100 (LSI). Do not take an IT requirement in your first year.
- Students planning to double major in History and Secondary Education should also follow
the History/Secondary Education Course Plan.
